One possibility is that this file originated from a PDF file, and was converted to Word. If, for example, the gaps between the letters in the PDF file were slightly different from the default style in Word, then Word would try to reproduce this accurately, resulting in lots of tags between words and letters. I have come across this several times.
There are two solutions:
1. Persuade the customer to send you a clean Word file
2. Eliminate these tags by copying all the text and pasting it into Notepad. Then copy everything in Notepad and paste it into a new Word document. Tell the customer what you have had to do, then translate as normal.
